Today’s assignment: create and upload a simple header, or test out a few different backgrounds.
I’ve been wondering for a long time whether or not my header fits my blog. I wasn’t sure if a header with strong Fairy Tail characters could convey the meaning of Otaku Daydreams. Thus, today’s assignment came in handy.
After playing around with the screenshots I’ve taken for my anime reviews, I chose this picture from episode 1 of Noragami, a new anime that I’m watching and reviewing this season. I feel that this picture matches the meaning of my blog title. What I really like about it is the lighting and the colours which give a dream-like feeling. For me, that’s the main focus of my header. (Yato and Hiyori just happen to be there, in a way. It’s not like I usually write reviews for romance anime.) For my header, I’ve included my blog title as a change. I really like the font, Cargo Crate and I find it very cool.
In my opinion, this header is a better representation of Otaku Daydreams. I haven’t tested out any backgrounds as suggested by today’s assignment. I feel that the light grey background fits well with the rest of my blog. It might seem plain, but it makes the actual content of my blog the main focus. Adding a background would be a bit too distracting to me.
Okay, I’m done with Day 7 now. Looks like it’s been a week since I’ve started participating in Zero to Hero! Anyway, let me know what you guys think about my new header.
